People can’t believe someone paid Sh550 for one chapati
A bill showing a customer who paid Sh1,650 for just three chapatis has gone viral on social media.
The amount was billed at Hotel La Mada in Nairobi on February 23 this year.
Usually, a piece of a chapati will cost as little as Sh10 in informal areas popularly known as kibanda and up to Sh100 in urban eateries.
But with the bill, it means the unidentified customer paid Sh550 per piece.
This left some Kenyans in shock with majority taking to social media to ventilate.
Below are a few reactions:
LMAO. What the fuck is wrong with this country? Chapo moja itakuwaje 550 bob?
Matano ma fefte? Hizo ni Chapo 55 pale kwa mama Brayo. Na upewe mpaka watchman wa kukusindisha mpaka home juu ya vile hiyo ni high profile purchase.
